This is a great new addition to my personal garden book shelves. Reynolds who has worked for Kew Gardens and beyond creates this primer for a new vision of gardening. Spiritual and ecological in nature she endeavors to find plants and designs that suit the soil; creating spaces for both inner and outer expressions of nature and ourselves. Beautiful & lavishly illustrated as well. ~ Reviewed by Maeve Noonan

My daughter and I used this book to guide us along when we made our own terrariums, as a fun little after-school project. The pictures provided great instruction and lots of inspiration. Our final projects didn't turn out quite as amazing as the terrariums in the book, but we'll blame that on operator error. ~ Reviewed by Chris Linendoll
